LOVING PATIENT PAWRENTS WHO WILL SHOW HER THE WORLD.
Tia is a 4 or 5 year old West Highland terrier described by her foster mum as a nervous girl who is desperate to trust. She has not had the best start in life but that’s not something Tia wants to dwell on she now wants to focus on finding love with her forever family. She wants to know what it feels to be loved and adored and that human hands are for good things like cuddles and treats.
Tia has a fear of a harness and lead, blankets and being confined, from her behaviour we believe she has been grabbed too many times so is wary of anyone grabbing her. This is being worked on and she is getting better every day. She’s beginning to trust her foster family and this encouragement is helping her to feel bolder and be brave.
Tia is learning to trust people and is beginning to enjoy a smooth and scratch behind the ears. She is now starting to lay beside her foster mum and nudge her hand for attention. She needs to be approached in a gentle manner with no sudden movements or she will panic and run.
She loves her food but is wary of taking from your hand just in case she is grabbed. She will be an affectionate little girl with a bit of patience and when she finds her feet, she will probably eventually rule the roost.
She is not cat or small furry tested
Tia has never really been in the outside world so is finding it all a bit intimidating. She is learning to go outside to toilet but you need to go with her initially so she doesn’t get scared. She’s not one for exploring yet as even the birds, bees and butterflies are creepy. Currently her safe space is next to you or her foster siblings on the sofa cuddling.
She currently sleeps on the sofa with her foster siblings and sleeps all night long. She has not been upstairs and stays where she feels safe with her foster fur family.
She is just learning to walk on a lead and is getting more confident every day. This will need to continue in her forever home with her patient pawrents.
Tia needs a home with another dog who will look out for her till she gets more confident about her surroundings. She needs patient and loving family who will help her to decompress and adjust. She has never met any squirrels or had a good sniff of the trees so this is definitely something on her to do list.
